Mesothelioma has so far been an incurable cancer and once diagnosed most patients will die within a year. The link between asbestos exposure and mesethelioma is now well established.

The tissues formed by the mesothelial cells are called as Mesothelium. The mesothelium helps protect your organs by producing a special lubricating fluid that allows organs to move around.
